Ruth Marshall SEWISC 2018 Annual Symposium SEWISC 2018 Annual Symposium

Celebrate our recent accomplishments and learn about our plans for 2019 and beyond. Love them or hate them, lawns are a fact of American life. Despite their reputation, lawns don’t have to be resource intensive to look good. This year's guest speakers will share information on low-maintenance grasses as well as native sedges and wildflowers that can be used to create lawns and lawn-like spaces that are inspired by natural plant communities in the Midwest.

We will also present our 10th Annual Sweat Equity Award during the Symposium, which honors outstanding Southeastern Wisconsin citizens and organizations for their significant contributions to prevent, control or eradicate invasive species that harm our region’s lands, waters, and wetlands. Please consider nominating adults and/or youth with whom you work or those from your community. 

Sweat Equity Award nomination forms
are accepted through October 18.

The symposium is free and open to the public. You’ll enjoy a terrific raffle and delicious local refreshments. Email: to become a 2018 Symposium sponsor and/or to exhibit at this event!
